Wednesdays, 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. in Wilmslow, Cheshire
Plans are advancing to re-open the MATTS professional training course for teachers in either January or April 2020.
Until MATTS re-opens, this class is intended principally as preparation for training for potential trainee teachers. However all qualified teachers, postgraduate teachers and visiting trainee teachers from other courses will continue to be welcome to come as they wish, without notice, exactly as with the Thursday Class. The Wednesday Classes run from 9 am to 1 pm in the same weeks as the Thursday Classes.
In the Wednesday classes a small group of students (usually around 10) have the opportunity to work intensively with several experienced teachers. The classes have the same daily schedule as a traditional training course for teachers, and prospective students will be able to get a sense of what it will be like to train as a teacher of the Alexander Technique at MATTS.
Regular teachers include Peter Bloch, Jane Osgood and Liz Hulse who will be, respectively, the course director, assistant director and co-assistant director of MATTS. And most weeks we expect to be joined by other teachers.
Students with an interest in training as a teacher who have not attended our classes before are requested to check with me before their first visit.
The Wednesday Classes happen in the same weeks as the Thursday Classes.
Autumn term: 4 September - 11 December (half term 23rd October).
Winter/Spring term**: 8 January 2020 - 1 April (half term 19th February). **Please note that these dates may change if the training course re-opens in January rather than April.
Class Fees: Each class is £50 for pupils, trainee A.T. teachers and postgraduate students. All visiting teachers are warmly welcomed and, although we will not be able to pay you, you will be offered both turns and tea!
Travel and Parking: please see the suggestions at the bottom of the Thursday Class webpage.
